HOW DO THE TA's PREPARE FOR THE CLASSROOM/YOUTH GROUP SESSION?
The TA Retreat gives a broad range of education in many of the issues the TA's will be talking about in the classrooms and life. At our meetings we spend time in team building, preparing for the classroom sessions and just having fun! We have a variety of material to choose from to form our sessions. It is our goal to have the latest information in facts and statistics to share with the community. A packet of information is given out at the session to help walk the groups through the facts and prompt discussion within the small groups.
WHAT DO I GET OUT OF THIS PROGRAM?
By joining the Teen Advisors you become a part of the accepting support group that provides guidance and love. Most of all you will feel an amazing satisfaction from changing the lives of your peers. I guarantee you will be changed too!
DOES THE TEEN ADVISOR PROGRAM REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Yes, yes, yes! These are youth working with youth. It uses the powerful tool of peer pressure in a positive way. The responses we get from teens that see the Teen Advisors is always positive. The encouragement they get from seeing their own peers take a stand on some hard issues gives them the courage to do the same.
